Let’s customize content in your WordPress categories!

Environment setup:

  • We recommend that you use Google Chrome browser to navigate the web,
  • Administrator Access to your WordPress Blog.

Log In to your WordPress Admin Panel

  • First, go to your WordPress Admin panel (yourwebsitedomain/wp-admin).
  • If you are not logged in automatically, simply log-in as an Administrator:

Installing the “Archive Control” Plugin

  • In the menu on the left side, please select “Plugins”.
  • Then click on “Add New”.
  • In the upper right corner, you should see a search bar. Type “Archive Control”.
  • In search results, you will find “Archive Control” by Jesse Sutherland.
  • Click on “Install Now”.
  • Wait for the plugin to install.
  • After that click on “Activate”.

Plugin Configuration

  • Now you should see that a new “Archive Controle” category appeared on the left side menu under “Settings” section. Click on it.
  • Now click on the “Taxonomies” tab.

Depending on the settings you choose, they will affect all categories or each category individually.

  • The first option that you can adjust is “Category Titles”.

Instead of showing e.g. “Category: News” before posts of that type you can remove Category: and just have “News”.

  • Another option is “Featured Image”.

Enable a featured image for the category. You can choose an image from your media library. Then you can set if you want the featured image to show only on the first page of results, select “First Page” only rather than “All Page Numbers”.

  • Next options are: “Content Before List” and “Content After List”.

When enabled, these settings allow you to add content before and/or after the list of posts.

  • The next setting is “Order by”.

You can choose how you want to order your content by selecting an option from the dropdown list.

  • Next setting is “Order”.

This controls the order which the posts appear in the archive. Ascending order – from smaller values to bigger/lower to higher. Descending order means the opposite.

  • Another option is “Pagination”.

The number of posts per page is set in the “Settings” > “Reading” section of your Admin Panel.

You can override this setting to choose “Show Everything”. This is not advised if you have a ton of posts in one category. You can also choose “Custom Posts Per Page” and input a number.

  • Last are “Term Edit Options”.

Per Term Order & Pagination” lets you change the order of posts in your category on an individual category basis.

Hide Description Field” means the category description won’t show in the admin directory when you go to edit or create a new category.

Hide Parent Field” stops you from adding a category as a subcategory of a parent category.

Remember to “Save Settings” after every adjustment you make!

Tags” section contains settings presented above but in connection with your Tags.

Now you can freely customize your content categories with more SEO Friendly content.
